(2014 c20) GKD Stately Flowers 1

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADTP: Direct to Paper inking is one of my favorite techniques and I used it in my project today.  To create the  background paper, I stamped with the bluebonnet stamp from Stately Flowers 1 by Melanie Muenchinger found at Gina K Designs on StampTV.  I then sponged with Tim Holtz Distress inks. For the focal flowerI heat embossed with black EP  and painted with Pearlescent water colors by Artist’s Loft found at Michaels.  I then sponged around all edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.   Focal was cut out using Marvelous Squares Nestabilities by Spellbinders.

The sentiment was cut out using Timeless Rectangle Nestabilities by Spellbinders.
